The HoopJumper Story
The genesis of HoopJumper began in the early 2000’s. Co-founder Brett Miller was the Web Division Director at what was the premier marketing agency for real estate agents in the country. At a seminar event, a client pulled him aside concerned about the long wait times to reach customer service to get anything done. He then asked “I’m always being asked to jump through so many hoops. Why can’t somebody jump through hoops for me?”
After stirring that night, the next morning Brett awoke with a vision of an Internet marketing company for entrepreneurial real estate agents that would “jump through hoops” for their clients and set them up for success on the web, and the word “HoopJumper” was created right then.
Three months later, partnered with renowned real estate coach and author Cheri Alguire, “HoopJumper” was born with the mission statement of “We jump through hoops so you won’t have to.” A vision of service, innovation and coaching that goes far beyond just websites.
Now, more than a decade later, HoopJumper has indeed become the Internet technology partner for some of the biggest top producers in the nation.
In addition to creating state-of-the-art responsive websites that incorporate all indexable listings from their MLS, HoopJumper also has created innovative solutions for making Social Media campaigns smart, easy and effective, and coaching their agents on how to make quantum leaps forward in their business.,
They say that 80% of agents won’t make it. Most agents fail before they have made it to their two-year anniversary. Of those that do make it through those first two years, many are making so little that their income hardly raises them above the poverty line, let alone provides the financial freedom they are searching for.
